Art Is My Therapy

Art is something I've been doing since I was very little. It is so much a part of me that I don't think I could function in a career that didn't involve some degree of art, like accounting or being a researcher or anything that doesn't involve artistic creativity. I honestly think I would probably get fired for daydreaming about a planning my next painting instead of doing my job. Art is how I cope with both the difficult and the beautiful things in life. Without it I wouldn't know what to do with myself. It's hard to explain but it's something that is inside my heart and incredibly strong and LOUD. I'm not sure if it will happen, but I hope to be able to turn my art into a living some day and for others to appreciate it and see and feel what I put into it. That would be the most gratifying thing. It makes the world less lonely in my opinion, to absorb what others feel so intensely both good and bad through something so simple (and not) as a painting or drawing or any other medium.
